Organic Cotton Fabric

One of our lovely customers, Marcia, sent us these photos of a beautiful cot quilt that her mother made. It's made from a Cloud 9 organic cotton fabric.

Marcia's mother said that she absolutely loved sewing with it. We often hear this about sewing with organic fabrics as they are softer than normal cotton and have a beautiful silky hand.

A big thank you to Marcia for sending these beautiful photos!

The April issue of House & Garden magazine has this great little display of childrens fabrics. They made up some cushions from the fabric we sent them. Cushion 6 is a Liberty fabricLiberty Fairford in pink, and cushion 5 is an Echino Flower Bed fabric. I love the way the whole scene has come together!

Curtain Fabric - Ty Pennington Impressions

So, who is the handsome man? And, what does he have to do with fabric?

Ahhh, well let me tell you...

Ty Pennington hosts loads of home renovation and DIY television shows in North America and the UK. He also designs furniture and home products for Sears and Howard Miller Furnishings. And in his spare time, he whips up a couple of fabric collections under the Ty Pennington Impressions label.

The fabrics we are stocking is the home decorating one (the other range is a lighter weight quilting collection). It's  printed on 138cm wide curtain fabric. I really love this collection. Many of the home decorating fabric designs that come out of the US don't really suit the Australian colour palette, lifestye or general aesthetic. But this one does. It's really relaxed and contemporary and includes neutral colours at it's core, peppered with punchy spice and cool ice.

New hemp and organic cotton fabric

I've just added two new hemp and organic cotton fabrics to the fabric shop. The Hemp and organic cotton textured birch has lovely variegated natural colours and is ideal for all sorts of home decorating, such as curtains, blinds, cushions, lampshades, slip covers and light upholstery. The Hemp and organic cotton stripe brown co-ordinates nicely with the textured one and is also a great home decorating all-rounder.

Nani IRO restock

These Nani IRO Fuccra floral designs have been really popular. We can't often restock this range, but we managed to get some more of these ones in the Fuccra Butter, Fuccra Teal, Fuccra Aubergine and Fuccra Grey.
